[Samba] Can join domain, can't login -- LDAP PDC

I am trying to set up Samba 2.2.9 on a SuSE 9.1 box as an LDAP PDC
whose only job will be authentication.  Our LDAP server is on a
separate box.  I can join the domain just fine, but when I try to
login via Windows, I get the following error:

"The system cannot log you on to this domain because the system's
computer account in its primary domain is missing or the password on
that account is incorrect."

I suspected that neither of these were the case, as I created the
account with idealx's smbldap-tools, so I checked through the slapd
logs after a login attempt and, strangely, Samba was never even
querying the LDAP server.  I checked the Samba logs, and here's what I
get whenever I try to login:

[2004/09/28 16:10:23, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(38)
[2004/09/28 16:10:23, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(39)
  INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 11 in pid 18021 (2.2.9)
  Please read the file BUGS.txt in the distribution
[2004/09/28 16:10:23, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(41)
[2004/09/28 16:10:23, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic(1094)
  PANIC: internal error

This is with log level = 10.  I've gone through all of the tests in
DIAGNOSIS.txt and all of them work.  I noticed this section in the

"If you get a "INTERNAL ERROR" message in your log files it means that
Samba got an unexpected signal while running. It is probably a
segmentation fault and almost certainly means a bug in Samba (unless
you have faulty hardware or system software)"

Yay.  There is no core, as the documentation suggests there might not

Does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks.
